What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

A WEEKLY REPORT FROM NEIGHBOR- ING TOWNS. Newsy Letters From the Tribune's Corm; of Busy Writer,. In Village and Hamlet. Lima. From Our Regular Correspondent: Lima is caustiously but unmistably going to boom this fall and next spring. So that we are justified in expecting pretting lively times in the near future as the question of the Spring Hill and Red Rock irrigation company is bound to be a success, and the stone quarg recent- ly discovered by Tomas Douglas and W. F. Gardner will be another addition to all our enterprising industries. Lima will boom sure and, considering our pres- ent actions and efforts in trying To get irrigation on the move to develop agri- cultural, grazing and farming lands we are sure to win. Lima is one of the most healthful towns in the state, we have the best of water. Real estate busi- ness will boom. As the situation now looks, we will become prominent among the energetic and aspiring corn- nominities of the state of Montana. The town is well located and is surround- ed by the largest and most fertile body of agriculture land in the state. All we want is what the Red Rock and Spring Hill Irrigation company is trying to accomplish and we are sure they will succeed. We have excellent water power both within and without the town limits. Lima can have the best of water works, affording a never failing supply of the purest water. Within five miles of Lima are the ex- tensive and practicably inexhaustible veins of stone, of the best quality yet discovered in the state. The coal veins on and near Big Sheep creek Predict something grand. I believe, and so does every one, that the lands of this county are as much farming lands as can be found in any of the eastern states. This has the advantage over some states in that it can be irrigated, and that is the subject which is agitating the minds of our Lima citizens more to -day perhaps, than anything else, and it is a subject which is worthy of our earnest thought and consideration, and that, my dear readers, is what I am trying to impress upon your minds (as brother \Prospector\ says: who hails from Birch creek). He writes and says \let us join hands and all work together with the feelings that we are citzens of Montana and that her future to a great extent rests in the acts of her people. Thousands of inches of water are going down the Red Rock river in the spring that are wasted, which would make the lands of this valley \blossom as the rose,\ if turned on them. Mr. McGee last week gave me his idea with regard to adopting the best plan to bring about the desired result of irrigation. If there are others who are interested, who have ideas, come forward and state them. We are open to all arguments. The officers and members of the Red Rock and Spring Hill Irrigation company, have been untiring in their efforts to make irrigation a success. The company should receive the encouragement of all who are interested. A survey has been made and the location of the canal has been fully decided upon. The canal will irrigate several thousand acres and the scheme seems to meet with great favor among every one. If no energy were dis- played by the promoters of the scheme we would probably be left, but we must all co-operate in this matter and take an interest in the work, because it affords oppprtunties for the farmers with their teams and an opportunity for the work- ingman to take stock in part payment for their labors, and helps at the same time every inhabitant of the Red Rock valley. It can be secured and the people desire it. There is not a true man in the county who does not appreciate the canal scheme. If they sit around home and take no active interest in the work noth- ing will be accomplished. The president of the company, Chas. T. Stewart, who has been east for the past month will be at home this week and then we will give more information concerning the scheme. We must work for the welfare of all our farmers and, therefore, we deem it our duty to ask for and writs the infor- mation obtainable. We have been asked a number of times for information con- cerning the progress of the enterprise. I will try and lay before the TRIBUNE readers all the latest information that can be obtained. In conclusion, I would state that I \Prospector\ gives a very able argument on the water question in last week's I TRIBUNE, and I am glad to learn that hisl \religion points that way.\ We must do RA the Colorado people, locate reservoirs; and not depend on uncertainties. fit lUG DELLON, MONTANA, FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 10, 1890.

Mr. Ousby, of Fish Creek has moved to the Bridges, so that his children can attend the winter school. The Normal school, under the manage- ment of Prof. J. A. Riley, is progressing finely.

From Normal School Correspondent: As the number of students has in- creased greatly, another room has been fitted up and a new teacher employed. Miss Lizzie Burnett, a lady from the Denver, Indiana, State Normal school, has been engaged to assist in the Normal department. She will begin work on Monday next. A new Remington type -writer will be placed in the school next week and a special teacher in stenography will begin work after the holidays.

In the winter of 1837 Mr. Francis P. Knowlton, of Hopkinton, N. H., pur- chased of Mr. Amos Kelley a sheet el wire netting from his manufactory on the main road, and constructed the first cornpopper ever made. The various parts were cut the required shape and then sewed together with wire. Mr Knowlton then made some for Judge Harvey and Judge Chase. which they sent to various parts of the United States as curiosities. Thinking that he could see a field of usefulness for the newly conceived article, Mr. Knowlton made several and took them to Concord to a hardware store, hoping to introduce be- fore the public a useful utensil and to receive a reasonable remuneration. His production was scorned and ridi- culed by the proprietors, and they re- fused to have anything to do with it. Unwilling to be th warte.1 in what looked to him to be a reasonable and sensible project, he !imposed leaving them to be sold on commission. and was told that he could leave one Or two if he would pay storage on them. From necessity he took them back to Hopkinton. The first one he made was laid away for a curios- ity It has since been given to the An- tiquarian society. and now finds a home in that valuable collection.
